It seems that MoveOn.Org, a 527 that the Democrats approve of, is planning to air an ad to quell the damage from the SwiftBoat commercial:
OPEN ON THE YOUNG GEORGE BUSH IN NATIONAL GUARD UNIFORM.
ANNOUNCER: George Bush used his father to get into the National Guard, and…
CUT TO BUSH’S NATIONAL GUARD MEDICAL FORM BEING STAMPED WITH “FAILURE TO APPEAR”.
ANNOUNCER: …when the chips were down, went missing.
CUT TO SHOT OF TV SHOWING “SWIFT BOAT” SPOT, THEN WORDS APPEAR ACROSS SCREEN, “FALSE ADVERTISING”.
ANNOUNCER: Now, he’s allowing false advertising that attacks John Kerry…
CUT TO FOOTAGE OF A YOUNG JOHN KERRY IN VIETNAM.
ANNOUNCER: …a man who asked to go to Viet Nam and who served with dignity and heroism.
CUT TO HALF SCREEN PICTURE OF JOHN McCAIN. HIS WORDS APPEAR ON SCREEN NEXT TO HIS PICTURE.
ANNOUNCER: Here’s what a true Republican war hero has to say about the anti-Kerry ad: “I think the ad is dishonest and dishonorable…I think the Bush campaign should specifically condemn the ad.”
CUT TO SHOT OF BUSH AND CLOSING DISCLAIMER COPY. ANNOUNCER: George Bush: Take that ad off the air. MoveOn PAC is responsible for the content of this advertisement.
When will they stop lying- Bush has nothing to do with the Swift Boat commercial and has repeatedly stated as much:
Soon after, White House spokesman Scott McClellan declined to do so and instead criticized the financing of the ad, saying the president “deplores all the unregulated soft-money activity.” McClellan said the Bush campaign had nothing to do with the ad or the group behind it. “We have not and we will not question Kerry’s service in Vietnam,” he said. McClellan used the opportunity to call on Kerry to join Bush in demanding that all soft-money groups quit running ads. The overwhelming majority of such ads have targeted Bush, often harshly. Kerry campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said Kerry will not ask the groups to stop their advertising.
I am sure Media Matters will get to the bottom of this pronto.
